    I don't think this should be returning a URL-encoded version of the string. In most cases,
we actually need to use the value after it has been decoded by Jersey. The only time we'd
want to re-encode it is before display... but this method doesn't seem to be limited to only
being used prior to display in the view.
    It should also not throw an UnsupportedEncodingException. UTF-8 is always supported. This
exception should be suppressed inside the method, instead of leaking out.
    Also, `` should be used instead of `"UTF-8"`, whenever the
String version of the charset is required.
